What a great time it was to have those wonderful puppies.
Snotra amazed me, she was such a good mama.
We did not have to help her, she knew from the beginning what to do, and took really good care of her babies.
She delivered 3 girls and 1 boy, all healthy and beautiful.
We took them out to play all the time, they had so much fun playing together.
Mama and daddy took such a good care of the babies.
Spurðann loved to play with the puppies, what a good daddy he was.

We are no longer breeding
We are often asked what breeders we recommend. We only recommend ISAA Approved Breeders. The ISAA is the only recognized Icelandic Sheepdog club in USA and Canada. The club works hard to support breeders who test breeding animals, don't breed young Icelandic Sheepdogs and support the preservation of the breed. Although there are no guarantees when it comes to live animals, at least those breeders follow  the breeding recommendation of the home country and, as mentioned earlier, take care to do basic health testing, sign a Breeder's Ethics Statement and follow up with puppy owners.
There are other breeders/groups/websites on the Internet that don't follow ISAA/ISIC breeding recommendations. They decide for themselves what is okay but, sadly, this often goes against what breed research has found is in the best interest for the breed and can actually harm the breed in the long run. They disregard the recommendations of the home country of the Icelandic Sheepdog. In a breed that can still go extinct genetically, this can have catastrophic effects.
